Abstract

This poster discusses the disorder known as Treacher Collins syndrome with a focus on understanding the syndrome and unique challenges in patient care. Hallmark features of the disorder present unique challenges for healthcare professionals, especially those providing anesthesia care. Patients with Treacher Collins syndrome are more much more likely than patients without the disorder to have a difficult airway. This poster explores the condition and some of the implications for providing safe patient care and achieving positive outcomes.
